Training Camp Observations, Aug 5, Full Pads

Atari Bigby and Morgan Burnett

Here’s a quick look at Green Bay Packers training camp from Aug. 5. Breno Giacomini running with the No. 2 offense Maybe this is due in part to T.J. Lang being a little banged up, but Breno Giacomini has been lining up with the second-string offense at right tackle and even lined up with first […]

Atari Bigby vs. Morgan Burnett

Atari Bigby Morgan Burnett

When training camp opens, the Green Bay Packers will have few spots in the starting lineup up for grabs. The only totally open competition is at left guard, where Daryn Colledge will battle Jason Spitz for the starting job. There are other positions that may turn into competitions, however. T.J. Lang and Mark Tauscher may […]

Packers Depth Chart: That’s Interesting, Man

The Sporting News released their pre-training camp preview for the Green Bay Packers on Sunday and our initial reaction was, to borrow a line from The Dude, that’s interesting, man. The depth chart wasn’t interesting so much for the starting lineups, but more surprising on some of the second-string players. First, it’s important to point […]

Packers Involved In Sexual Assault Flap

From the You’re A Rich Athlete, Watch Your Ass Files comes this number: several members of the Green Bay Packers were interviewed as part of the investigation of two alleged sexual assaults at a Lake Delton condo. The incident apparently took place early Saturday morning, after The McGovern Charity Golf Tournament held in nearby Wisconsin […]

Looking At The Packers As Preseason Favorite

Brad Jones

You hear a lot more about the idea in the national media than you do in the local media, that of the Green Bay Packers as a preseason favorite. Peter King ranked the Packers atop his preseason power rankings. Pro Football Weekly and Yahoo! Sports will declare the Packers their Super Bowl favorite in their […]

Bryan Bulaga Is Pretty Strong

Bryan Bulaga

Green Bay Packers’ first-round draft pick Bryan Bulaga is a big boy, but he showed he’s a little more than just a wide body last night. Bulaga took batting practice before the Milwaukee Brewers went out and got swept by the Philadelphia Phillies on Sunday. While quarterback Aaron Rodgers and tackle Mark Tauscher combined for […]

The Ascendance Of T.J. Lang Will Have To Wait

T.J. Lang

Green Bay Packers’ tackle/guard/man with no home T.J. Lang is expected to compete for a starting spot on the offensive line this season. It would be a surprise to me and probably a lot of other people if he didn’t win either the right tackle or left guard spot. But before we go and insert […]

A Look At Bryan Bulaga’s Packers’ Future

Bryan Bulaga

As we sit around and wait for the second part of the NFL Draft to begin tonight, we thought it would be a good time to take a more in-depth look at the Green Bay Packers’ first-round selection, Bryan Bulaga. As I mentioned yesterday, Bulaga isn’t the elite-level tackle prospect that Trent Williams, who went […]

Exclusive Interview With Andrew Brandt

Andrew Brandt

You know, some of us used to be “real” journalists here at Total Packers, so we thought we’d drag those skills out of the closet and do an actual interview for once. We were lucky enough to track down National Football Post president – and former Green Bay Packers’ vice president – Andrew Brandt. Brandt […]

Keep An Eye On Outside Linebackers

Sean Weatherspoon

The Green Bay Packers have several needs – probably more than a legitimate Super Bowl contender should have – entering this year’s NFL Draft. We’ve been harping on tackle and cornerback as the two biggest areas the Packers need to improve. At tackle, the Packers are relying on veterans Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher. Both […]

What Is Packers’ Biggest Need?

The Green Bay Packers have several glaring holes this offseason – offensive line, cornerback and safety among them – but I’ve been wavering as to which is the most troublesome. Offensive tackle is the obvious answer, but the cornerback position is an increasing concern on par with, if not greater than, the tackle position. The […]

Packers Offensive Line In Flux, Lang Still Doesn’t Have A Home

T.J. Lang

The Green Bay Packers have more than a few questions along the offensive line entering the season. One of them is where second-year man T.J. Lang will play. While most of us expect him to compete for and eventually take over the right tackle spot, Packers’ coach Mike McCarthy doesn’t necessarily agree. “There’s a difference […]

Tauscher Is Back In the Fold

Mark Tauscher

The Green Bay Packers have resigned right tackle Mark Tauscher to a two-year deal. Financial terms have not been reported. The deal wasn’t unexpected. Packers coach Mike McCarthy hinted the deal was close on Friday. The Packers have been busy in the the past week, reaching deals with left tackle Chad Clifton on the opening […]

Tauscher Deal Reportedly Close

Word out of Green Bay is the Packers are close to a deal to resign veteran right tackle Mark Tauscher. “I feel Mark Tauscher is definitely not too far away, and hopefully we’ll have some news for you there shortly, and no different with Ryan Pickett,” coach Mike McCarthy said. “We’re focused on bringing our […]

Tauscher Could Be On Browns List

Mark Tauscher

It’s hard to believe there will be much competition for a 32-year-old right tackle on the free agent market, but then, the free agent market isn’t very strong this year. So, Green Bay Packers right tackle Mark Tauscher, who will become an unrestricted free agent later this week, could have some teams kicking his tires. […]

Green Bay Packers Combine Roundup 2

Bruce Campbell

There are all kinds of totally awesome stories coming out of the NFL scouting combine, so let’s get right to it. Maryland offensive tackle Bruce Campbell, who we suggested might be available when the Green Bay Packers pick at No. 23, is tearing it up. Campbell ran a 4.85 40-yard dash, which is pretty damn […]

Four Year-One Starting Caliber Tackles in 2010 NFL Draft

Bryan Bulaga

The Green Bay Packers are certainly in the market for tackles this offseason. Both 2009 starters, Chad Clifton and Mark Tauscher, are free agents. While the Packers may re-sign them simply because they don’t want to rely on two young and unproven tackles, both are at the end of the road and need to be […]

Packers Top Free Agent Priority: Ryan Pickett

Ryan Pickett

Some interesting tidbits have come out about the Green Bay Packers free agent priorities in the past week. Although he’s clearly their top player without a contract for the 2010 season, safety Nick Collins is not at the top of the Packers’ list of players to resign. The main reason is Collins will be a […]

Most of Packers Offensive Line Under Scrutiny This Offseason

Packers offensive line

With the way the Green Bay Packers offensive line performed during the 2009 season, it shouldn’t come as any surprise that three of the five spots are likely to be in flux this offseason. Chad Clifton’s left tackle spot was a weakness for most of the season and right tackle was a major problem until […]

Ranking The Green Bay Packers’ Free Agents

Nick Collins

The Green Bay Packers have 18 players in their contract year after Monday’s resigning of linebacker Brandon Chillar. However, the situation isn’t as dire as it may look. The collective bargaining agreement – the agreement between the owners and player’s association that dictates the rules of the salary cap, free agency, guaranteed spending, rookie salaries, […]
